How to inspire manners in your children – Everyone in this world is judged by the behavior or the way they treat others. A person who respects others is respected in the same way.
The process of inheriting good behavior i.e. manners starts from the very beginning in one’s life. A person who have learned or who has been taught good manners in the childhood tends to grow in the same way as he has been taught and is respected by everyone he meets and wherever he goes. So here we have brought for you some of the most effective ways to inspire your children to learn good manners.
1. Greet your children
When entering the house greet your children or even hug them. This should help develop their sense of love and self worth.
2. Treat your neighbors as Your Family
Be good to your neighbors and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children listen, absorb and emulate.
3.Encourage your children to interact more with your parents
When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take them with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.
4.While Driving them to School narrate stories by yourself.
When driving them say to school, don’t always play albums or cds (even if my cds!). Rather, tell them the stories yourself. This will have a greater impact – trust me!
5.Read them a short story or Scripture
Read to them a short story and even a scripture a day – it doesn’t take much time, but very impact in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories.
6. Dress well even at home
Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable cloths even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out!
